Les Bleus continues my exploration of the iconic Helvetica typeface. A series of three posters created around the font name and point size in royal blue, then overprinted with a contrasting, vibrant colour showing the name and corresponding Cicero size (a measuring system used in Italy where this particular block type originated).
Each unique, letterpress poster has been hand inked and printed using original techniques and processes. They are individually signed, numbered and embossed.
Size: 61cm x 45.7cm (fitting a 18” x 24” frame)
Edition: Limited to 24 (8x Yellow, 8x Green, 8x Pink)
Paper: 280gsm Vellum smooth paper
Ink: Royal Blue + PMS 1235 Yellow, PMS381 Green, PMS225 Pink
Best album listened to while printing: Are You Satisfied by Slaves
Please note: Each poster is unique, the prints are hand inked and hand printed and variations may occur in the finish of the ink and type textures.
All posters are sold unframed and will be carefully wrapped in tissue paper and shipped in a cardboard tube. Prices include GST where applicable.
